CITY ANNOUNCES ‘COMPLETE STREETS’ MAKEOVER FOR INTERSECTION OF WHITNEY AND AUDUBON
(8/26/2013) Whitney Avenue and Audubon Street intersection—situated in the heart of New Haven’s busy east side dining and shopping district and bordering Yale University and the Audubon Arts District—is getting a complete make-over.
The City of New Haven, utilizing the professional design services of CDM Smith, has redesigned the entire intersection using ‘Complete Streets’ principles.
The City of New Haven has one of the mostly densely populated downtowns in New England in addition to thousands of visitors to downtown each day. “This work is part of a larger effort by the City to make downtown easily navigable, more attractive, appealing and safe for everyone—pedestrians, motorists and bicyclists,” said Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. “This redesign also creates a sense of place at the intersection.”
